its on the clutch peddle to keep it from starting til the peddle is depressed. it can be bypassed, but then the car will start while its in any gear. -

I worked on cars since 1993 and never seen a clutch peddle. What was the clutch supposed to peddle? -

OMG!! WTF.........LOL....LMAO........ but it did take me more than 3 seconds to 'get it' for that I am embarrased.Have you guys been infected with the ziptie virus? -
Answer 2
it is under the dashboard above the clutch pedal, you will find a switch connected to a wiring harness. its purpose is to prevent starting the vehicle unless the clutch is disengaged. I worked on cars since 1993 and honestly never saw a clutch peddle...what was it peddling? -
